Dining In Destin

New things to do and try always seem to be popping up in Destin!

This calls for nearly limitless fun and enjoyment while you’re visiting.

Our breathtaking beaches and glimmering water has a tendency to make people unwind and relax. However it seems that no matter where in the world you are, nothing quite boosts spirits and plasters smiles on faces like a great meal!

There are hundreds of places around here to get a good meal, it’s hard to choose where to go. We’ll give you a few of the most popular spots to dine while you’re exploring the Harbor.

The Harbor in Destin is the main attraction in the city. There is a lot of buzz and the tourists have a lot of fun there.

With all the music, drinks, food and views you can stay there for hours and forget about all your worries. We’ve tried these places ourselves and we hear our guests raving about them after they come back from their meals so they’ve been tested and approved!

Take a seat, enjoy fresh gulf seafood, grab a cold beer and watch the sunset. Nothing else in Destin can compare.

Harbor Docks

Not only is this place popular on the Harbor but it’s one of the most popular spots in the entire city. Harbor Docks takes pride in only serving freshly caught fish from local fisherman everyday. if you want to taste Destin and enjoy a local family oriented atmosphere you will absolutely love Harbor Docks. They serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and sushi!

Sea Oats Motel is near the best seafood!AJ’s Seafood & Oyster Bar

One thing you might not have known about this popular restaurant is that thirty years ago it was just a small oyster shucking place, now it’s become a huge destination spot in Destin. AJ’s sits directly on the marina where all the local fisherman unload their catches of the day. It’s an awesome thing to witness if you have never before. They serve extremely savory, unique seafood dishes you will want to come back for seconds. Their Mahi-Mahidish is one of the most popular on the menu and you’ll love it. They have live music, cold drinks (one of the best Bushwhackers in the area), fresh seafood and more. At night they offer a an atmosphere for adults to enjoy themselves called “Club Bimini” which is located on the top deck.


This restaurant hasn’t been open too long, especially compared to some of the other landmark places but they are quickly becoming as popular as the others. They offer a southern seafood styled menu with a family oriented environment. The kids will love it here! It sits on top of a sandy dune with beautiful beaches below and play areas for the children. Enjoy a cold drink under the sun while the kiddos play. In addition to serving seafood they also cook up steak, poultry and colorful vegetables.
